Lake Laura real estate is a limited supply market for lake homes and land in Michigan.
Lake Laura is situated in the Canadian Lakes area of Stanwood, Michigan, about an hour north of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The nearest commercial airport is Gerald R. Ford International Airport, located about an hour south of the area, with smaller local airports nearby. Hospitals in the area are small, but if medical help is needed, the closest hospital is Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital, about 15 minutes away.
If you are looking for a quiet, off-the-grid, remote retreat, this is a perfect fit! This small-town feel also comes with growing commerce, complete with businesses to satisfy your everyday needs. There's never a need to travel too far from your home for groceries, a bank trip, or a trip to the eye doctor.
Being a landowner in this development gives residents access to golf courses, indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness area, a hot tub, a sauna, six beaches, as well as a winter sports park with cross-country skiing and ice skating. In addition, residents can enjoy the Royal Grille Restaurant and Lounge located within the development.
Lake Laura is restricted to no wake, but residents are welcome to enjoy the water in canoes, kayaks, and fishing. Largemouth bass is the primary species in this area, as well as northern pike, perch, pumpkinseed, sunfish, and tiger muskies. Crappie is present but not very commonly caught. Rainbow and brown trout, while not present in Lake Laura, can be found in the nearby Little Muskegon River.
For owners who want to water ski and tube, Canadian Lakes has a central “all sports lake” located in the center of the Canadian Lakes Chain, where residents can gain access through public boat ramps.
The area of Canadian Lakes also contains a campground — perfect for anyone who wants an outdoor adventure.
